Eastern Star mourns the loss of Sis. Marion A. Mundle

Marion A. Mundle, 89, of Moncton, and formerly of Rexton, passed away peacefully at the Briarlea Home on Friday, April 26, 2019. Born in Clifton, NB, she was the daughter of the late Percival and Elvina (Halloran) Knowles.

Marion was a member of St. Andrews United Church where she was a CGIT leader and Sunday School teacher. She was also a long time member of the church choir and the Eastern Star. Marion was involved in the Rexton Recreation Council and the St. John Ambulance as a long-time volunteer. She worked at the Rexton Elementary School as the school librarian, where she was able to instill her passion for books and reading onto the students. She retired in 1996. Marion’s greatest joy was that of being a wife, Mum and friend. She spent many days taxiing hockey players but never understood the concept of an off-side! She loved to cook and knit, passing this passion along to her grandchildren, who in return gave her a passion for “texting” them on her tablet and surfing the internet.

Marion will be sadly missed by her husband of 61 years, Daryl Mundle; daughter, Patricia Roberts (Gregory); sons, Marven Mundle (Dawn), David Mundle (Angela) and Bradley Mundle (Cindy); eight precious grandchildren, Melanie, Shayna, Jacob, Lindsey, Brett, Miranda, Emma and Ben; as well as a special niece Ellen Allain and several other nieces, nephews and extended family members.

She was predeceased by her two sisters, Esther McBeath and Margaret MacLean, as well as her niece Sheana McBeath.

Visitation at Fergusons Funeral Home, 1657 Mountain Road, Moncton (858-1995) on Wednesday from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. A Service to celebrate and honour Marion’s life will be held from Fergusons Funeral Home Chapel on Thursday, May 2, 2019 at 11:00 am. Reception in the Funeral Home Reception Centre following the service. A private interment will be held at St. Andrew United Church Cemetery, Rexton.

We would like to thank the staff and management of the Briarlea for the exceptional care and compassion shown to Marion over the last several years. She came to think of both staff and residents as her extended family. Their kindness will never be forgotten.

In memory of Marion, donations to the St. Andrews United Church Cemetery Fund, Rexton, would be appreciated. Online condolences for the family may be shared at www.fergusonsfuneralhome.com
